How to perform manual sync with the new Azure AD Connect.

On occasion, it may be required of you to force a sync between your local AD environment and your MS Azure / Office 365 environment. By default, this value is about 3 hours. For whatever reason, you need to make a change to a user object, you may need to perform this sync so they can utilize the services.

This command is very simple to execute.

  1. Open an elevated Windows Azure AD Module for Powershell window.
  2. Navigate to the “C:\Program Files\Microsoft Azure AD Sync\bin” folder.
  3. Run either the .\DirectorySyncSlientCmd.exe with either the Initial or Delta argument.
